G+ Exclusive Series: 33 Ways to Reboot Your Life

3. Start your day with this real food smoothie

Continuing on the morning routine theme ...

You might choose incorporate this real food smoothie into your morning routine. 

But why I am saying “real food” smoothie? Is it just to be pretentious? Possibly :).

But also, I want to draw the distinction between “real food” - food that grows on trees and in the ground - versus pre-packaged smoothie powders and enhancers.

Or God forbid, the mystery syrup they put in smoothies at most shops (note: it’s not a mystery at all actually - it’s cocaine, I mean sugar).

Here’s a a recipe to get you started (this makes enough for 2 people). I prefer a Blendtec blender, but any high powered blender will do. If you don't have a high-powered blender (3HP), don't include the avocado seed! You think I am joking. I am not. 

Here's the recipe - Strawberry Smoothie Surprise:

• 2 cups of distilled water 
• 8 oz. organic strawberries
• 1 ear corn cut from non-GMO corn
• 1/2 avocado (if you have a Blendtec or Vitamix, include the seed)
• 2 fresh mint tops with stem
• 1 node fresh cilantro 
• 1 oz. goji berries 
• 1/4 small red beet
• 1/2 organic cucumber
• 1/2 fuji apple with seeds
• 1/2 lime with pith 
• 1” fresh ginger root
• 10 dried cordycep mushrooms

The variety of real food smoothies you can make is endless. Everyone has different tastes so I recommend you experiment for a week or two with a bunch of different options and lock in on one or two winners that become part of your regular rotation. 

Even if you are making the smoothie just for yourself, I recommend the above amount because you can put some in a jar and have mid-morning for another boost.

One of the best books for tons of high-energy real food smoothie recipes is Smoothie Formulas by Jeff Primack. A little more expensive than your average book, but I believe that I've more than gotten my money back out of this sucker. 

P.S. Try the chocolate hazelnut mouse recipe. It is awesome!
